Alan Wake Game Guide & Walkthrough

Lights Out. The article consists of general tips about the rules of the game, complete walkthrough of all six episodes and also a list of weapons, equipment and enemies present in Alan Wake's world.

Last update: 05 June 2022

This guide and walkthrough to Alan Wake is an extensive compendium of knowledge about this action game with psychological horror elements. Its main part is the complete walkthrough. We described how to go through all six episodes, with the division into individual missions. We have also added the walkthroughs for special episodes available as DLC. Beginners can check out the Beginner's guide as well as descriptions of the opponents and weapons.

An extremely important part of the guide is the chapter devoted to the collectibles and trophies/achievements. Locations of all collectibles will help you to quickly get the script pages (also those available only at the highest difficulty level), coffee thermos, TV programs, stacks of cans, or notes in Bright Falls. The descriptions of all the trophies/achievements will help you complete Alan Wake in 100%. We described how to get all the achievements - those related to combat, the progress of the plot, or Meet the Deadline.

Alan Wake: Beginner's tips

We recommend checking out a few stating tips to make the first contact with Alan Wake more pleasant. The tips will explain what the light is for or how to deal with enemies.

  1. Collect everything. Any items you find - weapons, ammunition, or batteries - can be useful later in the game.
  2. Flashlight is extremely useful. It allows you to defeat enemies, but also to search for traps and ammunition supplies. However, keep in mind that using the flashlight will drain the battery, require a replacement.
  3. Light protects you from enemies. Being in the light makes enemies unable to attack the hero. You also regain health by standing under the glowing lanterns.
  4. Sprint is limited. You can't sprint all the time. Remember that after a moment of fast running, the hero starts to move slower, making him an easy target.
  5. Flares drive enemies away. Remember about this when you are surrounded by opponents. You can also use a rocket launcher or a flash grenade.

More tips can be found on the General tips page.
